Buccaneers draft pick gets drafted an hour after graduating

Sandra Mu

One new Tampa Bay Buccaneers went from graduating straight to being in the NFL.

Anyone ever land a job paying a couple hundred grand per year within an hour of graduating from college? Well, Kadeem Edwards did today.

The Bucs selected the offensive guard in the fifth round, just after 2 PM ET today. It looks like Tennessee State started their commencement for undergraduates at 9 AM and for graduates at 11 AM, so there must have been some tense moments where he could have gotten the call during the ceremony. Then again, shouting "I'm an NFL player" during your graduation ceremony is probably pretty cool. 

Still, that's not remotely as weird as getting called by a team during the first dance at your own wedding, as happened to this Kansas City Chiefs undrafted free agent. That's just crazy.
